Just a head's up
That's about what I paid for mine..you can get about 14 pounds of grain in it. For people starting out or where money is an issue, or space for too much gear (like me), it works fine for most normal grav ag beers..It works perfectly for those doing PM's or 2.5 gallon batches.
I would love a larger one, but space is an issue for me, and honestly I have not yet come upon a need in all my AG batches for a 10 gallon one, despite what a lot of people advise the new brewers....
If I've come too close with my grain bill I have tweaked and used a thicker mash to get the water and grist in.
It just takes some tweaking, really.
